LPA Voted Best RegTech at SRP 2022 Conference

Frankfurt am Main & London, 31 March 2022 – LPA, the capital market technology and advisory firm, is delighted to have won the award for best RegTech provider at the 2022 Structured Retail Products European annual conference.

The critical success factors for implementing a robust ESG strategy.

Sustainability matters. The topic has become omnipresent in our everyday lives and has also been reshaping the financial industry over the last years. The demand from both retail and institutional investors for sustainable investments has been increasing tremendously. This transformation is politically desirable and reinforced by legislation. While multiple countries have anchored the importance of sustainability in their national legislation, the European Green Deal has set the foundation for considerable new regulations for the financial industry. To deliver the ambitious targets laid out in the deal, European regulators have been eager to help direct the flow of money towards financing the transition to a sustainable economy.

UCITS/PRIIPs Distribution It’s Going to be a Nightmare

The FCA has completely buried the initial one-system objective with the formation of a UK version for PRIIP KIDs. Manufacturers of UCITS and PRIIPs that distribute their products to the EU and the UK will need to deal with three separate systems, an EU PRIIP KIDs for all PRIIPs distributed in the EU, a UCITS KIIDs for UCITS distributed in the UK and another UK PRIIP KIDs for PRIIPs (other than UCITS) distributed in the UK. Distributors will need to be very cautious about providing the right document for each combination of products and potential clients. The KI(I)Ds future turned uneven and complicated. The rest of 2022 is going to be very challenging for manufacturers and distributors as they now need to update their systems and disclosures to support the new regulatory amendments, and distributors need to train their personnel on the changes.
